Papal History~ Travelin' Tuesday



With the news of the first Pope to resign in 600 years,
and a very busy week ahead,
it seemed appropriate to take a very short trip to Rome,
specifically the Vatican, this Travelin' Tuesday. 


Here are just a few shots of the beauty of the place. 


So many saints, 
so little time. 






And a view from the top.





While not a Catholic or a Pope-follower,
it is always fascinating when history is made. 
And soon excitement will ensue while Rome and the world 
await smoke signals.


I promise to be back with more French news next week
but enjoy these travel photos until then.

Kirsten my dear! Yes, history alive, right here in this OLD CITY with so many ghosts and stories embedded in every stone. One day, I must get there, but I need to get myself back to Paris and then on to London. Oh the places to go!! Anita
